Welcome once again to our Winnipeg Engagement Ring Journal. Today we would like to show you a lovely custom engagement ring that we created for a special couple. This design features a bright and beautiful pear shaped diamond, which is set in an elegant criss-cross white and rose gold setting. Now let’s take a moment to look at the design process that went into creating this custom design.
Beginning the design…
The client requested that we create a custom engagement ring and sent us some wonderful images to use as inspiration. After discussing various style options, it was decided that his fiancé would love the ring to feature a pear shaped diamond.
A little bit about pear shaped diamonds…
Pear shaped diamonds make for an excellent choice for a unique engagement ring due to their striking shape. The pear shape combines the rounded edges of the classic brilliant cut (round diamond), with the tapered point of the marquise diamond shape.
One important thing to keep in mind when considering a pear shaped diamond, is to take into account the diamond’s symmetry. The point of the diamond should line up with the apex of the round side and the round side should appear proportional and not too narrow or squat. There are times when diamond cutters may attempt to add weight to the diamond by leaving too much of the rough stone towards the point making the diamond look too squared off and squatty.
At Omori Diamonds, we always make sure to scrutinize all aspects of a diamond’s quality gradings including it’s proportions, and ratios in order to ensure that the diamond has been cut in such a way that the maximum amount of light is reflected back out the top, resulting in the greatest possible sparkle.

Onto the design…
After discussing design ideas, we began by creating some 3D CAD (computer aided design) renderings of the ring for our client to view. This stage allows clients to see their engagement ring design from a variety of angles and suggest any changes to their design. As you can see, the CAD images are extremely accurate representations of the finished design.
The “heart on the bridge”
Another unique aspect of this custom engagement ring design is what we like to call the “heart on the bridge”. This is a feature we have been adding to a number of our designs, which involves a diamond (or in this case a Garnet) which has been cut to the shape of a heart, placed in the bridge of the ring. This acts as a romantic secret reminder to the person wearing the ring of their love.

Finalizing the design
After the client approved the CAD images, we then showed them a wax model to review so that they could see a physical representation of their engagement ring design. Once this was approved we had the design cast and finalized. Our master goldsmith then set the diamonds and polished the design. We are very proud to say that our client and his fiancé loved their custom Omori engagement ring design!
